Braces | Orthodontist in Lake Elsinore, Riverside, and Tustin CA | Cool Smiles Orthodontics

Braces

At Cool Smiles Orthodontics, we combine cutting-edge technology with traditional treatment options to maximize your results. We have several different options of braces to suit your needs at our six convenient locations.

 

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces remain one of the most popular treatment options due to their proven reliability and effectiveness. Modern orthodontic advancements have made metal braces smaller, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. Experience shorter treatment times, less discomfort, and better results with our traditional metal braces.

How do braces work?

Traditional and clear braces use brackets attached to each tooth with a metal wire running through them to apply gentle pressure to a patient’s teeth. Small elastic bands are wrapped around the brackets to hold the wire (called an archwire) in place. Your orthodontist can adjust your elastics and archwire to finetune your treatment and slowly encourage your smile to move into proper alignment.

Clear braces

For those seeking a more discreet orthodontic experience, we offer a clear bracket option to patients of all ages. These ceramic brackets are clear or tooth-colored to blend in with your teeth so that they appear smaller and less noticeable. They operate in the same way as metal braces and are simply less visible.

In order to maintain the discretion of clear brackets, they require careful hygiene and care. Clear brackets are slightly larger and less durable than our metal bracket option. Some patients choose to have clear brackets placed only on their front top teeth and metal brackets placed everywhere else to get the best of both worlds.

Are clear braces right for me?

If you’re nervous about the social implications of traditional metal brackets, clear braces may be a great alternative for you. They are less noticeable, more aesthetically pleasing, and can help the wearer to feel more confident about wearing braces. You can also choose to have a blend of both metal and clear brackets for your treatment.
